Using DNA to understand why foods affect you the way they do

Posted by Athletigen on Sat, Oct 27, 2018

Do you ever wonder why each and every person has a different experience with food and their diet?

We’ve probably all seen by now how individual responses to different diets — from low fat to low carb and high fat — vary enormously. That’s why we see so many heated discussions out there on what the ‘best’ diet is. Yet some people on a specific diet program lose 60 pounds and keep it off for two years, and other people follow the same program religiously and they only lose 15 pounds and then gain it right back.

We also see so many variances with how foods affect certain people. Some people can eat bread and drink milk until the cows come home without any digestive issues. Others bloat at the mere thought of these foods (okay, that might be a slight exaggeration).

While there are a number of potential explanations for this, there’s one that is a huge contributor to why foods affect us differently — genetics.

Did you know that on average, genetic differences of only 0.05% make every person unique? It is this very reason that causes each and every person to have a different experience with their diet and their health.

The best science out there is showing that the key to weight loss and optimizing your health, energy levels, and performance appears to be highly personalized rather than a result of trendy diets. This is exactly what your Athletigen report does for you.

Athletigen has taken some of the guesswork out of how food affects you specifically, which gives you highly personalized actionables to make the best of your health.
